A flag of a country represents the ideology, speaking for the nation and what they believe in. It is not mere cloth and ink, it stands for unity, liberty and signifies the fight the resilient nations fought till they reached the point of independence that they enjoy today.
A flag is connected with colors of honesty, dedication, patriotism, and passion. But what exactly do the visual colors signify and what story does the flag of the country tell?
Here is what we can understand by just looking at:
